    Talking Hello!

    Hi, everyone. My name is Jill, and I'm from Houston. I've been quilting for about 14 years, and I thought I would give it up last summer, but after selling my main sewing machine, I changed my mind. Yeah, I'm THAT smart. I do have an older Brother machine (PC-8500) that I'm using but I've got my eye on a Pfaff Creative Performance when I get my bonus in March.

    I have two kids that are pretty much grown, a husband that I'm not sure will ever grow up and a mini-Schnauzer who is convinced he's a barking human! I am really looking forward to getting to know folks here, and to learn and contribute where I can. :-)

    Welcome to the board Jill. I've been here about a year and look forward everyday to seeing what's new. There is
    always lots of inspiration with the beautiful quilts displayed and the talent found here. Enjoy your new machine when she arrives!
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    Such a sad story - I am glad you changed your mind....or was this just a ploy to get a new machine? If so, WELL DONE YOU!!!! Anyway, welcome!
    Enjoy your day,
